Amazing Trip to Beijing
Apr 2021
This was our first time to go on a private tour here in China and it was well worth it. Peter was an excellent guide, who took care of everything, and was very knowledgeable and pleasant to be with. Visiting the Great Wall was a highlight for me and my kids loved riding back down in the toboggan. Being able to jump in the van and relax as we were driven from place to place was great and it is highly recommended if you have kids. Our driver, Lee, was very polite and both he and Peter provided a great service. I highly recommend this tour.

Best trip we ever had!
Apr 2021 • Family
We were in beijing for 3 days and had Peter as our guide. From the very beginning he was personable, very helpful and patient. He brought Beijing very close to us in this short time, organized everything in advance and responded to our wishes. So everything was perfect! We can highly recommend Peter!

Wonderful visit with Joyce!
Dec 2019
We did a Beijing Private Tour with Joy and had a wonderful set of visits!
We were able to come up with a customized itinerary to focus on what we wanted to visit - the Forbidden City, the Great Wall, the Temple of Heaven, and the Summer Palace. The highlight was the Great Wall, which was stunning.
It was very helpful to have Joyce's explanations on the sites so we understood what we were seeing and also her assistance for logistics - pick up, drop off, knowing where the nearest toilets and baby changing facilities were, and where we could warm up from the cold. We were traveling with a toddler and her help made this a smooth experience.

Beijing Private Tour
Dec 2019
We had two families (8 people) on our first trip to China. Catherine Lu Tours was amazing. From Jenna helping us make our itinerary to Sonja our awesome tour guide. We saw all of the main attractions and had time in the week to shop and walk around. Sonja knows so much information about the history, she ordered amazing lunches, and was just helpful in making this one of the best trips we've ever taken. We'd highly recommend Catherine Lu Tours if you are going to China.

Amazing trip with Joyce!
Dec 2019 • Family
I have been to China before but wanted to bring my portuguese family to experience the country, and I am so glad we found Catherine Lu! Joyce was our guide and she was amazing, accommodating our needs and was very patient throughout - her knowledge for Chinese history was incredible, we could point at ANYTHING at the Summer Palace and she would tell you a story about it. In between places she would tell us the history of location as well as many stories from the old royal court / emperors which we found very interesting. We went to Forbidden City, Summer Palace, temple and heaven and the Wall in 3 days - was a bit rushed but we knew that it would be the case, so I would recommend spending more days in Beijing if possible. Joyce was very honest with us on this trip - took us to actually local restaurants for delicious meals and did not recommend us to any shopping traps. It was an incredible trip for our family - thanks again Joyce!

Beijing and Shanghai visit
Nov 2019
This was our first visit to China. We didn't know what to expect. Our guide Sonia from Catherine Lu Tours was excellent. Her knowledge and professionalism were of the highest quality. Having a guide with so much passion and enthusiasm makes you want to come back for the next visit. Thank you Sonia for guiding us, Thank you Catherine Lu Tours. I would highly recommend Sonia and Catherine Lu Tours for all future customers.

Beijing 2019
Nov 2019
We have been back from Beijing for only a few days and have already highly recommended Catherine Lu tours to friends. Connie provided a personal, informative experience that we will not soon forget. We felt very safe and cared for during the entire trip AND felt like we were getting an inside look at some of Beijing's treasures. She carefully listened to our interests and chose destinations and restaurants that fit that. In addition, she added personal touches like gifts of new fruit each day! Such a treat after feeling jet-lagged each morning.

3 Day Beijing with 1 Day Xi'an
Nov 2019
Wow! What a great experience with Catherine Lu tours! My family of 4 (2 young kids) enjoyed every bit of our time in China. Helen and Nico were our guides in Beijing and Sunday was our guide in Xi'an. All 3 were so knowledgable, helpful, and kind; true experts. I was amazed at how quickly they became part of our family for the day. The hardest part of our trip to China was saying good-bye to these incredible people. We're looking forward to a return trip and will certainly look to work with Catherine Lu and team in the future.

Fun and educational trip in Beijing
Nov 2019 • Couples
We had a very nice 3 day tour. Joyce, our guide, was knowledgeable, professional and flexible. She was always prompt and crafted the itinerary to meet our interests. The Great Wall was amazing (we want to the section where you can take the toboggan back down the mountain) and the historical sites and temples were also great. The Lama Temple was one of my favorites.

I appreciate how Joyce helped us make selections for lunch that we would enjoy. Our driver was also very nice and professional.

Thank you Catherine Lu tours.
